Dept of Census & Statistics says the Overall Rate of Inflation, as measured by CCPI dropped to 35.3% in Apr’23, compared to 50.3% in Mar’23: analysts allege the Census Dept arbitrarily changed it’s base for the calculation of the CCPI from Feb’23 onwards to reflect and report a lower CCPI.
CBSL statistics Dept SUDDENLY replaced the "2013-index" with a "2021-index".
It's clear that CHANGE in the measurement yardstick, has affected the "inflation" numbers very significantly.
